Best beds for allergy sufferers


If you suffer from allergies it is important to opt for a mattress that not only offers comfort and support, but has anti-allergenic properties so that you can sleep soundly without compromising on your health and wellbeing.

What causes allergies in bed?

Dust mite faeces rather than the actual dust mites are the main culprit to allergic reactions in bed.

Common allergic reactions to dust mite faeces include sneezing, itching, watery eyes and wheezing. Dust mite allergies have also been linked to headaches, fatigue, and depression.

What’s the worst mattress for allergy sufferers?

Coil and spring mattresses are the least favourable for allergy sufferers because of their inner spring system.

The inner cavity of coil and spring mattresses create an incubator for dust mites where dust mite faeces and dead skin cells accumulate.

Pillow-top and quilted-top mattresses can also attract dust mites. With light, loose padding, these soft fibrous tops provide an ideal environment for dust mites to thrive in.

So what is the best mattress for allergy sufferers?

If you have allergies pure latex mattresses without springs are the way to go as they inhibit the growth of dust mites.

Natural latex has anti-allergenic, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. The unique Dunlop manufacturing process ensures that all these characteristics are embodied within the Dunlopillo range of pure latex mattresses, making them ideal for allergy sufferers.

Dunlopillo mattresses are also treated with Actipro; a natural probiotic technology to eliminate allergens, dust mites and odours which helps maintain a clean, fresh and healthy sleeping environment.

If you have bad allergies, there are also pure latex pillows that can help. These breathable pillows will help support the body by easing neck pain and back pain.

The quality of your sleep impacts on your overall health and wellbeing, so make you are getting the best night’s sleep possible by using the best mattresses and pillows for allergy sufferers like you.
